オランダは日本やドイツなど同じく鉄道密度の高い国である。ヨーロッパの代表的空港の一つに
数えられるスキポール空港からアムステルダム中心及び近郊へのアクセスは非常に良く、
頻繁に電車や列車が運行されている。空港からアムステルダム中央駅への所要時間はノン
ストップで15分と短く、二駅停車する電車に乗っても20分足らずで到着する。ただ15番線から
発着する場合はエスカレーターもエレベータもなく、重い荷物を抱えている場合は大変である。
中央駅出入口には改札口のある部分とない部分とがある。オランダの多くの駅では改札口は
単に切符を刻印する役割を果たしていると思われる。

数多くの国際列車もアムステルダムを中心に伸びている。高速列車が運行されパリ北駅と
アムステルダム間を4時間あまりで結ぶ。ドイツ鉄道のインターシティはベルリン間には一日、
6便がある、6時間30分で到着する。国際間の列車運行は想像以上に頻繁である。現在、
ベルギーの首都、ブリュッセルからスキポール空港までの高速鉄道を建設中で近く開業する。

スキポール空港(アムステルダム国際空港)オランダ最大の空港で、出発客と到着客とが
同じラウンジと搭乗ゲートを供用している。搭乗前に必ず行われるセキュリテイチェックは
搭乗ゲートにて行われている。


2008年1月、「アムステルダム・スキポール空港ターミナルビル内、レストラン、カフェ、航空会社
ラウンジを含む、全ての場所で全面禁煙となった」と伝えられていたが、この報道は正確では
なかったようだ。今回の検証旅行で明らかになったことは、空港3階喫茶店の奥に喫煙ブース
が設置されていたことだ。2階のパスポートコントロールからここを見上げると、もうもうたる
タバコの紫煙がガラス越に見えていた。喫茶店は空港施設ではなく、この喫煙室は喫茶店の
中に設けられた「分離した喫煙室」と解釈すべきなのか?
